In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

My point was that you were saying an iPod-like device is somehow "reduced" when only used for consumption... when someone created/loaded a program that allowed to that consumption to occur. The reduction is not with the device but how it is used by any given user, hence my reference to the old C64 days. People make applications for the iPod and other devices that are used primarily for consumption so the device itself is not a one-way street.

Obviously it is pointless to discuss these matters with you
